All films are availble via various streaming and terrestrial TV services.
Day 8 – Jingle All The Way (NOWTV)
Howard Langston, a salesman for a mattress company, is constantly kept busy at his job, disappointing his son. After he misses his son’s karate exposition, Howard vows to make it up to him by buying an action figure of his son’s favorite television hero for Christmas. Unfortunately for Howard, it is Christmas Eve, and every store is sold out of Turbo Man. Now, Howard must travel all over town and compete with everybody else to find a Turbo Man action figure.
Arnie. Christmas. The hunt for a toy for his son for Christmas. It blends into a chaotic comedy for the Austrian Oak. One of the more recent enteries into the Christmas Movie Countdown, this film actually gets better with time. Simple premise, great slapstick, some excellent co-stars (Rita Wilson, Phil Hartman, Sinbad and Jim Belushi among others) and a Christmas message all rolled into one 90 minute movie. What more could you ask for?
If you’re behind on the countdown you can catch up via the links below the poster. Enjoy.
